  • A photo of Evelyn's previous full-scale show House+Wife back in 2014...the inspiration behind this month's exhibit at S. Dot Gallery.

  • The hostess hard at work. This goes here, no maybe here...what about here.

  • Can we see anything yet?

  • Oh now we can!

  • S.Dot Gallery is pleased to present "House + Wife: A small gathering" works by Evelyn Davis-Walker.

  • Lets go on in!

  • Ooohhh - LOVE the colors!

  • "The House Next to the House with the Citrus Splitzer Tree" Mixed media encaustic wax collage 3” x 3” $40

  • Anyone up for a cup of tea? Cheeseball maybe?

  • Those reds against the painting, oh my!

  • Cookies? Chocolate?

  • "The House Next to the House Where the Little Boy Pees in the Yard" Mixed media encaustic wax collage 3” x 3” $40

  • Hmmm, who is this table set up for?

  • Martinis, nuts and pipes, oh my!

  • The vacuum cleaner is so loud! Dot and Dorrie are probably hiding.

  • "Small Vacuum and Rug" Iron-on transfer on wood with vacuum sculpture $40

  • Jello anyone?

  • "Small Apron" Iron-on Transfer on Fabric $40

  • The cake is iced and ready to eat...right out of the oven? Thats a magic oven!

  • "Small Stove" Paper collage in epoxy resin $70 *contents on and in stove NFS

  • "Small Refrigerator" Paper collage in epoxy resin $70

  • Hey, these groceries aren't going to unpack themselves! Emily Post would be rolling her eyes right now!

  • Fruit anyone? How about a bundt cake?

  • A housewife's work is never done. Perhaps we should start reading Davis- Walker's artist Statement? "My work examines the identity of housewives, and the homes they cared for, as depicted through advertisements from 1930-1959. The role of the housewife in society has evolved drastically over the last 60 years. Many contributing factors have forced us to rethink the identity of the housewife. As an artist, I enjoy exploring the role of the 1950s housewife in ways that can help me forge my own identity as a wife and mother."

  • "Small Kitchen" Paper collage in epoxy resin 2” x 3” $40

  • "Advertising gave a voice to the wife’s social identity – a voice, not her voice. In a male driven business, advertisements were primarily written and created with a male undertone. As a graphic designer and professor of graphic design, I use the language of advertising copy in my artwork to manipulate social messages that once bombarded women – reversing their intended meanings. What makes a house a home? Is it the wife--charged with its upkeep, or is it the outside structure defining the property? My work explores the identity of both the “HOUSE + WIFE.”

  • DOT!

  • "Rather than displaying the items as art pieces in a gallery space, I chose to convert the gallery space into a traditional American home to reinforce the object’s natural environment. This floorplan layout is inspired by “The Nassau”, a signature Sears and Roebuck home. By converting the gallery space into a miniaturized model, I was able to give an accurate representation of home life in the 1950’s."

  • A wife should never forget her glasses and gloves before leaving the house!

  • "Houseplan: Small Master" Paper collage in epoxy resin 2.5” x 2.5” $40

  • "An epitome of Americana sixty years ago was the white picket fence. With the "House Next To…" series, I use encaustic wax to bind layers of wax to retro-collaged advertisements in the shape of individual picket fence planks. The wax’s materialistic qualities provide a nostalgic-like feel of a simpler time. The "Houseplan" series provides the viewer insight to specific identities of rooms through collaged advertisments of the 1950s - encased in epoxy resin."

  • "My intent is for viewers to look at the framed collaged pieces and household objects on display and look past their obvious function, to ultimately see an extension of the housewife’s identity on the items that once socially defined her."

  • Small Ironing Board with Iron Iron-on Transfer on Foam with Iron sculpture $40

  • Still haven't seen that Dorrie yet. Hmmm....

  • "Houseplan: Small His" Paper collage in epoxy resin 2” x 3” $40
